Up to $600 in savings on FA Limited lenses w/ K-3 Bundle
Posted By: Adam, 01-27-2014, 08:13 PM

The saving for the FA 31 combo looks to be $700, not $600.

Not bad...
600 on the lens itself, 100 for the free bag, filter, and warranty

But yup, it's an awesome deal for those that don't already have a K-3.

Agghhhh, I have yet to fully feel that I have my K-5 utilized like my old K10d, I'm not ready for a new body yet!!! I guess I'll have to wait another time for the 31mm to be in reach...

Comparing Apples and Oranges - Just for the fun of it

I purchased a Pentax K-3 from B&H, coupled with the DA 18-135 WR Lens and a discounted DA 35/2.4 lens, as well as the free Grip, DA 1.8 lens & 32GB Extreme Sandisk Card. Engaged in the meaningless exercise of subtracting from the total price the cost of purchasing each of the other elements at B&H's listed price, I arrived at an imputed K-3 body price of $680.00 or so (around $600.00 off of the $1296 "list price"). Just for fun, I performed the same exercise for each of the Adorama deals (using B&H for the price of the lenses, sling and warranty). Under that analysis, the imputed price of the K-3 body comes to $635.00, $740.00, $838, $888 and $888, respectively. Of course, this is a grossly simplistic way of looking at it, but it would tend to suggest that the Adorama deal is not particularly better than the prior B&H deal (without the discounted added 35/2.4 it would have been an imputed price of $720.00), excepting only in one instance.

Amazon has K-3 for around $1019, so it is comparable to adorama's 'free kit lens' offerings. They also have $1454 for a kit with 18-135:

We have a whole, BIG thread on why we won't buy one. I think the current reasons have to do with ants & yellow jackets...
